Barangaroo South stands tall at National PCA awards
Barangaroo has already redefined the Sydney city skyline, and received state-wide recognition as a prime example of next-generation precinct-level development. This has continued to national acclaim at the recent Property Council of Australia awards gala, taking home five major awards in a ringing endorsement of the project.
This recent haul of awards is in addition to the PCA NSW awards, where it received the prestigious NSW Development of the Year Award last month.
As the developer as well as the design and construct project manager, Lendlease had sustainability and energy efficiency as key objectives on the project. Barangaroo South had a 6 star Green Star Office Design and As Built (v3) and NABERS 5 star plus ratings target as a minimum. This set the project apart from other contemporary offerings of similar scale. The project is also the first in the world to be awarded WELL certification at the Platinum level, thanks, in part, to an innovative HVAC solution.
NDY contributed to the project as the Lead Services Consultant for International Towers Sydney with specific design responsibility for Mechanical Services, Electrical Services, Security Services, Communications Services, Building Management and Control Systems Services and the Building Information Model (BIM).
Barangaroo South has been an amazing project for NDY and we are very proud to have been associated with it”, says NDY Director Richard Pickering. “The commercial towers are some of the most energy efficient in the whole of Sydney, and their Sustainability credentials will be the new benchmark for others to follow.
The full list of national PCA awards wins for Barangaroo includes:
